The New York Jets have signed running back Thomas Rawls and linebacker Neville Hewitt. The Jets announced the moves Friday. In need of help at running back after starter Matt Forte retired Youth Saquon Barkley Jersey , New York turned to Rawls, who spent three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, starting 17 games. He gained 1,336 yards and scored seven touchdowns on 314 carries for a 4.3-yard average. The 24-year-old Rawls also had 31 receptions for 266 yards and one TD. Rawls Keke Coutee Color Rush Jersey , who went undrafted out of Central Michigan, has been plagued by injuries, including a broken leg in 2016. Hewitt went undrafted in 2015 but spent the past three seasons with the Dolphins either on the active roster or practice squad. He has 104 tackles, one sack R.A. Dickey Jersey , four passes defensed and one interception for his career. The Tennessee Titans keep wrapping up their own players with defensive lineman DaQuan Jones the latest to reach agreement on a new deal keeping him on the roster. The Titans announced Wednesday that they have agreed on a multi-year deal with Jones after reaching a new deal to keep right guard Josh Kline and signing defensive end David King to a one-year deal earlier in the day. Tennessee also announced they tendered a contract to left guard Quinton Spain, a restricted free agent. Financial terms on the deals were not released. A fourth-round pick out of Penn State in 2014, Jones has started 45 of his 51 games, and the 6-foot-4 Authentic Taven Bryan Jersey , 322-pound lineman was playing his best with a career-high 3 陆 sacks before tearing a bicep that put him on injured reserve Dec. 4 . General manager Jon Robinson claimed Kline off waivers from New England in September 2016. Kline has started 30 games at right guard for Tennessee on a line that allowed the third fewest sacks (63) and blocked for the third most rushing yards (4,020) in the NFL. An undrafted free agent from Kent State, Kline started 18 of 33 games in New England and won the 2015 Super Bowl. The Titans agreed to terms Tuesday with a pair of former Patriots . The deals with cornerback Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis will be signed once free agency begins. Spain, undrafted out of West Virginia Vikings Jalyn Holmes Jersey , has started 33 of his 35 games played over the past three seasons for the Titans. King signed a one-year deal after being poised to become an exclusive rights free agent after playing seven games with four tackles and a sack for Tennessee. The Titans picked him up last September in a trade with Kansas City, and King was a seventh-round pick by Philadelphia in 2013 out of Oklahoma. .

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice for Game 5 of Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Bergeron missed the Bruins’ 3-1 Game 4 victory Thursday with an undisclosed injury. The Bruins lead the series 3-1 lead and can advance with a victory. If Toronto wins http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-franklin-myers-jersey , Game 6 is Monday at Air Canada Centre. Bergeron participated in the morning skate at Warrior Ice Arena and said he was optimistic, but had to sell it to the medical staff. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy thought Bergeron ”looked good” during the skate. After totaling 30 goals and 33 assists during the season, Bergeron had five assists in the first three games of this series. Bergeron is impressed with how his team played during his absence. ”It speaks a lot to both the depth that we have and guys always find a way to step up,” he said. ”It’s something we’ve been through many times this year, so I was definitely confident. But, at the same time, you’re always a lot nervous when you’re not playing.” Shortly after the San Jose Sharks were denied by the iron for the fourth time of the night Olivier Rodrigue Oilers Jersey , Marc-Andre Fleury rubbed the goal post to thank it for his good fortune. There’s something magical about the ride the expansion Vegas Golden Knights have been on all season and now it’s going all the way to the Western Conference Final. Fleury made 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the Golden Knights have made it to the NHL’s final four in their inaugural season after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in Game 6 of their second-round series Sunday. ”It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but I’m proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here,” Fleury said. ”I’m proud to be where we are right now.” Fleury, who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, is a main reason for the success. He allowed just three goals in a first-round sweep against Los Angeles Adidas Frans Nielsen Jersey , posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3. He had plenty of help from a crew of castoffs who have come together in Vegas to form a team that has a legitimate shot at a championship. Vegas next will play either Winnipeg or Nashville in the Western Conference Final. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night. ”We deserve to be here,” coach Gerard Gallant said. ”We’re a good team, we play hard and we played well all season long. The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams.” Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay and Cody Eakin sealed it with an empty-netter to help Vegas become just the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its first season. The Toronto Arenas won the Stanley Cup in the first postseason in league history in 1918 and St. Louis won two rounds to win the all-expansion West Division in 1968. The Sharks had numerous opportunities all night but were thwarted by a couple of shots that hit the iron, some acrobatic saves from Fleury and other chances that trickled just wide. This marked the fourth straight postseason for the Sharks that ended with a loss on home ice. ”It’s very disappointing, you get this far and lose, it’s disappointing Mike Remmers Color Rush Jersey ,” Sharks forward Logan Couture said. ””It’s extra disappointing when you don’t play the way that you know that you’re capable of. … That’s something that’s very difficult to take.” The Golden Knights took control of this game with some good fortune in the second period. It started when usually reliable Marc-Edouard Vlasic turned the puck over in his own zone. Reilly Smith took control near the blue line and found Marchessault alone in front for a goal that trickled between Martin Jones‘ pads. The Golden Knights then added to the lead after an icing by Brent Burns led to an offensive zone faceoff. David Perron beat Tierney on the draw and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out. Play went on for 25 more seconds before the buzzer rang, with the situation room in Toronto calling for a video review. That quickly showed that the puck bounced off the post, off a piece equipment inside the net and out. Vegas then had a delayed celebration for the goal that made it 2-0. ”I had no idea,” Schmidt said. ”I’d never seen something like that happen where they blew the play dead, but when I was skating back to the bench and all the guys were yelling, `It’s in.”’ That was the type of bounce the Sharks didn’t get early in the game when they hit the post or crossbar three times in the opening period and then again in the third when they tried to cut into Vegas’ lead. They also had several other chances that either Fleury turned aside with acrobatic saves, trickled just wide or they were unable to get a clean shot 49ers Elite Jerseys , like a rebound Couture whiffed on from the slot in the first period with an open net. ”It’s a fine line,” coach Peter DeBoer said. ”I think we had a couple of those that didn’t go in. That’s hockey. But Vegas deserves to be moving on. They played great. They finished the chances when they needed to and got saves when they needed to.” NOTES: Jones made 30 saves. … Vegas F William Carrier was scratched with a lower-body injury and replaced by Ryan Reaves, who played his first game this postseason. — .

Before he left town a few weeks ago after working out for the Seahawks Authentic Geron Christian Jersey , Brandon Marshall picked up a little bit of Seattle-related gear at the airport. He was that confident an opportunity to continue his career was going to happen with the Seahawks. "I went in there and bought a couple of things, some shirts, socks because I knew that moment was going to happen. I felt good about the workout," Marshall said. Marshall became the latest addition to the Seahawks when he signed a one-year deal Wednesday and was immediately on the field as Seattle continued its second week of OTAs. Marshall displayed some of that gear he bought when he announced on social media his intent to sign with the Seahawks. His work was limited in his first day, understandably, but it was a sign of how quickly Marshall wants to get this latest 鈥?maybe last 鈥?phase of his career started. Marshall is coming off an abbreviated 2017 season where he was limited to five games with the New York Giants due to an ankle injury that required surgery. He was due to make $5 million this season with New York but was released by the Giants in mid-April. At age 34, Marshall said he didn't have many options after he was released. "I think the sentiment around the league is that I'm done. And I get it, rightfully so, when you get on the other side of 30 and your production slips and you have a big injury. People count you out," Marshall said. "It was an interesting process. It was a humbling process." While Marshall had his ankle repaired surgically, he also had surgery on his toe for an injury suffered during the 2015 season while with the New York Jets. The combination of procedures extended Marshall's recovery, and it was only just before being released by the Giants that he was able to progress beyond just rehabilitation from the surgeries. Marshall said he was originally going to wait until he retired to have the toe surgery. "That's the thing that took the longest. Right when I was released from the Giants, probably a few days later I was able to run pain free. I was able to run routes and do things and train while rehabbing Youth Donte Jackson Jersey , but it wasn't pain free. ... I've been working ever since. I feel good. I don't feel great. Obviously I've got a lot of catching up to do." Getting Marshall to Seattle is the fulfillment of a wish coach Pete Carroll had early in his tenure with the Seahawks. At that time, Marshall was in the prime of his career and Seattle wanted to make a show of its lakefront practice facility by bringing him in on a seaplane for the visit. "We flew him into the dock or something like that. It was crazy," Carroll recalled. "We went all out. It didn't work out. We've had our eye on him for a long time because of his style of play. Very aggressive. Can be the big receiver in the offense and his playmaking has always been something we've kept our eye on." The question for Seattle and Marshall is what kind of role he can play now. Carroll has made it clear this offseason that the team is going to be rededicated to the run, but Marshall could certainly be a desired red zone target thanks to his 6-foot-4 frame and the absence of another player like him on the roster. He is three years removed from being a second-team All-Pro in 2015, when he caught 109 passes and 14 touchdowns with the Jets. Marshall said he had a very candid conversation with the Seahawks during his visit. "The process they take you through in terms of the screening process is worse than the TSA line," Marshall said. "They did their due diligence to say the least and really broke down everything since I've been in the league and had some great conversations, some transparent conversations, some challenging conversations and I had to answer some tough questions." PHILADELPHIA — The top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles will compete in their first playoff game in four years when they host the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC divisional round Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles lost MVP candidate, quarterback Carson Wentz, down the stretch but still managed to finish 13-3 and earn the No. 1 seed with backup Nick Foles. Ironically, Foles was the quarterback in 2013 when the Eagles fell to the New Orleans Saints 26-24. The Falcons received the sixth and final playoff spot in the NFC, then promptly traveled to the West Coast and defeated the Los Angeles Rams 26-13 in the wild-card round. Philadelphia became the first No. 1 seed to open as an underdog in the playoffs. In the last two regular-season games, the offense sputtered under Foles with a 19-10 win over the Oakland Raiders and a 6-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Foles did sit out the majority of the regular season finale against the Cowboys. “Yeah Dan Bailey Cowboys Jersey , there’s going to be wonder,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said when asked how his team will respond in the postseason. “But I’m going to tell you, ‘Listen, these guys are football players.’ I think sometimes the outside, whether it be the media, the fans, can make it bigger than it really is. When you boil it down, it’s football at the end of the day. It’s football at the end of the day. Just go do your job. “Do what you’ve been coached to do all week long and give it your best effort on Saturday. If it’s good enough, great. If it’s not, then we focus on next season.” Foles was 4 of 11 for 39 yards and an interception against the Cowboys and struggled to throw the ball downfield. Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld was 19 of 23 for 134 yards, but the Eagles have repeatedly made it clear that Foles is the starter. “As much as we and everybody else wants to run the football, you have to be able to stay aggressive in the pass game and get the ball down the field,” Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. “Nick has proven that over the length and entirety of his career. He not only can get the ball downfield Michael Gallup Jersey Elite , he can do so very well. He wants to throw the ball downfield. He’s aggressive in his mindset, as aggressive a guy as I’ve been around. He’s looking to throw it down the field. Some guys are the dink-and-dunk kind of guys. That’s not Nick. Nick is aggressive. “So we need to be good in the run game and be able to mix in our play-action, take our shots down the field, keep the defense off guard and keep them guessing and that starts with good production on first down,” Reich added. The Falcons, who finished the regular season at 10-6, are preparing for their second road playoff game. Quarterback Matt Ryan (personal reasons) and wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle, ribs) both missed practice Tuesday but are expected to start on Saturday. Ryan was 21 of 30 for 218 yards and a touchdown in the 13-point win over the Rams. It was his first road playoff win in three starts. “We’re not here just to get here,” Ryan told reporters. “We want to make noise while we’re here. This is what it’s all about. It’s about giving yourself the opportunity this time of the year to compete and play in games like this, and to win games like this.” Ryan led Atlanta to the Super Bowl last season in what wound up being a heartbreaking overtime loss to the New England Patriots. He was able to guide the Falcons back to the postseason once again. “He’s a hell of a competitor, and those of you that know him know the nice guy you see through the media, but in between those white lines, he is a wolf Hayden Hurst Youth Jersey ,” Atlanta coach Dan Quinn told ESPN.com. “I love what he stands for as a competitor, and his teammates know that, too. I thought there’s all sorts of examples, getting hit and bouncing back up, getting ready for the next one. He really showed that kind of toughness to his teammates.” Ryan, who was raised in nearby Exton, Pa., and attended Penn Charter High School — is 1-3 all-time against the Eagles in Philadelphia. The Falcons forced a pair of huge fumbles and turned them into 10 points against the Rams. Kicker Matt Bryant also booted four field goals. “We know that they’re a good team, and we know that they beat us last year,” Atlanta free safety Ricardo Allen told ESPN.com of the Eagles. “We know we’re going to have to go there and fight.” .

Police say former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was attacked during a run-in with a facility-service employee at the airport in Atlanta. Atlanta Police spokesman Jarius Daugherty says Jones confronted ABM Industries employee Frank Ragin after Ragin made a "gesture" toward the football player Tuesday night at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Police say words were exchanged before Ragin struck Jones with a closed fist Jorge Alfaro Jersey , causing a cut to Jones' face. Cellphone video footage shows that Jones and Ragin traded several punches with each other. Jones ultimately knocked Ragin down to the ground with a punch to the face then hit the employee one more time before a man broke up the fight. Daugherty says that at some point during the fight, Ragin ended up hitting a woman who was with Jones, injuring her hand. He says Ragin was the aggressor and Jones defended himself. Jones and his friend declined medical treatment. Ragin was arrested on two counts of battery and taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries. Jones, a one-time Pro Bowler, spent eight seasons with the Bengals. He's also played for the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys. Even though police determined Jones wasn't at fault Malik Jefferson Color Rush Jersey , the NFL veteran has had other off-the-field issues. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charge after his confrontation last year with hotel security personnel and an obscenity-filled tirade against arresting police officers. Police said Jones kicked and used head-butting as he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a hotel employee. The NFL suspended Jones for one game for a violation of its personal conduct policy. This story has been edited to correct that Jones is a former player of the Cincinnati Bengals. Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk took the field Tuesday for the first time since a report surfaced about his arrest in the months before the team chose him in the second round of the NFL draft. Kirk ran routes, caught passes and took part in special teams work. He was not made available to reporters. But head coach Steve Wilks was asked about Kirk following Tuesday’s full-team mini-camp practice at the Cardinals facility and he said the team knew about the arrest. ”We did our own independent research on it, and we felt very good about the information we received,” Wilks said. ”That’s why we moved forward and really drafted him. And as I stated before, we want to bring in great character guys http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-weston-richburg-jersey , and I think Christian is one of those guys.” Kirk, 21, who is from nearby Scottsdale and who played his college ball at Texas A&M, was arrested the night of Feb. 3 outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on charges of disorderly conduct and property damage. According to police, Kirk was with a group that was intoxicated and throwing rocks at cars. Wilks said he believes the matter will be resolved in a couple of months. ”With it still being an ongoing legal issue Darius Leonard Colts Jersey , I’m not going to go into it any further than that,” Wilks said. NOTES: Wilks mentioned the strong practice performances of RB David Johnson, who is coming off a dislocated wrist injury that cut short his 2017 season in Week 1, and rookie first-round pick QB Josh Rosen. ”Some of his timing and his throws with the quarterback and the tight ends I thought were right on point,” Wilks said. … QB Mike Glennon came off the field early in practice with a trainer. Wilks said Glennon had a stomach problem. The coach expects him to be on the field Wednesday. — .

The Las Vegas Stadium Authority has signed the final documents necessary to build the future home of the Raiders. Team President Marc Badain and authority chairman Steve Hill signed the lease and development agreements on Wednesday for the $1.8 billion Cheap Markus Wheaton Jersey , 65,000-seat stadium that also will serve as home to the UNLV Rebels. The two shook hands before Hill declared, "Let's build a stadium." The move came a day after NFL owners voted 31-1 to approve the stadium plans and financing, including a $200 million loan from the league. The domed stadium is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 1, 2020. The Raiders have said that the total cost of the move from Oakland to Las Vegas, including a training facility and headquarters, will top $2 billion. The signing of the lease agreement 鈥?more than a year in the works 鈥?clears the way for the Clark County Commission to consider issuing construction bonds for the project. A total of $750 million in Clark County hotel room tax revenue will go toward the project. As part of the deal, the 62-acre stadium site that the Raiders purchased last year for $77.5 million is scheduled to be transferred to the Stadium Authority on Friday. The climate-controlled stadium where the team wants to kick off the 2020 season will feature 80-foot-tall retractable doors that will give fans a view of the casino-resorts on the Strip. Nevada officials expect 450,000 people a year to travel to Las Vegas primarily to attend an event at the venue, whether it's a Raiders or college football game, a concert or motorsports event. Don Webb, an adviser to the Raiders Authentic Roquan Smith Jersey , told the authority board last week that the stadium roof will be made of a polymer that will allow natural light in, and an exterior ribbon-like structure that will help push fresh air into the venue and exhaust out. He said the light transmitting portion of the roof is about 550 feet (167 meters) wide by 750 feet (228 meters) long. The stadium will look black from outside during the daytime, but on the inside it will be transparent to the outside. At night, the lights inside the venue will be visible from outside. Stand or stay out of sight. Looking to quell a national debate that was sparked by Colin Kaepernick, stoked by President Trump and some say chipped away at the very popularity of America’s game, NFL owners approved a new policy Wednesday that allows players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room but forbids them from sitting or taking a knee if they’re on the field. Commissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise aimed at putting the focus back on football after a tumultuous year in which television ratings dipped nearly 10 percent. He said it was unanimously approved by NFL owners, but that was immediately called into question when the head of the San Francisco 49ers – Kaepernick’s former team, no less – said he abstained from the vote. The owner of the New York Jets also took a more conciliatory approach, promising not to punish any player who continues to protest against social injustice in full view of fans. The players’ union said it wasn’t consulted in the talks and would file a grievance against any change in the collective bargaining agreement. The owners seemed to address that concern by saying only teams would be fined for violations, not individual players. But the league also cleared the way for teams to set their own workplace policies, raising the specter of an even more convoluted approach to an issue that has dominated conversation away from the field. The head of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith Authentic Roquan Smith Jersey , angrily denounced the new policy and called it a blow against America’s most basic of rights – freedom of speech. Since the new policy is a change in the terms and conditions of employment that was not collectively bargained, any attempts to fine individual players would surely be opposed by the union. ”Management has chosen to quash the same freedom of speech that protects someone who wants to salute the flag in an effort to prevent someone who does not wish to do so,” Smith wrote on Twitter. ”I know that not all of the NFL CEO’s are for this and I know that true American patriots are not cheering today.” So, what happens to a player who decides to keep kneeling during ”The Star-Spangled Banner?” Considering Kaepernick is heading into his second year without a job and a former teammate and fellow protester, Eric Reid, is also out of work, it seemed to clear to at least one player what message the NFL was trying to send. ”If the team says `this is what we’re doing,’ and ownership (does too), you either deal with it or you’re probably going to get cut,” Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster said. ”They’ll find a way to get you up out of there.” Arizona Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea, who has been in the league for a dozen years, scoffed at Goodell’s notion that this was a step toward appeasing all sides. ”If you want to use your right of freedom of speech and take a knee Authentic Nyheim Hines Jersey , you’re going to get fined,” Bethea said. ”So it’s really not a compromise. But they did give us the option as far as guys wanting to stay in the locker room. It’s going to be something guys are going to have to deal with. Either it’s going to be a team thing and everybody stays in the locker room or everybody goes out and stands.” 49ers CEO Jed York said every owner who voted was in agreement with the new policy, but he abstained because he wasn’t comfortable with a process that didn’t directly involve the players. He wouldn’t say if any other owners declined to vote. ”I want to work with my team to make sure everything we do is about promoting the right types of social justice reform and getting to a better America,” York said. Jet owner Christopher Johnson said his team will pay any fines doled out by the league, without passing on punishment to the players. ”I will support our players wherever we land as a team,” Johnson said. ”Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions.” Clearly, Goodell and most owners just want to put the divisive issue behind them. The NFL started requiring players to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 – the year it signed a marketing deal with the military. ”We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand,” said Goodell, who dismissed concerns about the lack of union involvement by contending the league met with countless players over the past year. ”We’ve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices,” the commissioner added, ”but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on.” The owners spent more than three hours over two days addressing the contentious issue – which made it all the way to the White House. Kaepernick Redskins Cheap Jerseys , the former 49ers quarterback, began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016, a quiet but powerful protest against police brutality and racial inequities in the justice system that has drawn both praise and scorn. Other players took up the cause, and the gesture carried on during the 2017 season even after Kaepernick left the 49ers and failed to be picked up by another team. Trump turned the debate into a campaign issue , saying the NFL should fire any player who takes a knee during ”The Star-Spangled Banner.” The NFL hasn’t gone that far, but Kaepernick and Reid believe they are being singled out as leaders in the movement. Both have filed collusion grievances against the NFL . There was no immediate comment from Trump on the new policy, but Vice Pres.

The Los Angeles Rams will get to make up for lost time with eight picks on Day 3 of the NFL draft on Saturday. With four picks in both the fourth and sixth rounds Sean Lee Cowboys Jersey , the Rams will have plenty of chances to address needs in the defensive front seven. The Rams have to replace outside linebackers Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin, who combined for 13.5 sacks last season, and inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, who led the team with 95 tackles. Head coach Sean McVay identified replenishing depth throughout the roster as another goal, something they accomplished with their lone selection so far by taking TCU offensive tackle Joe Noteboom in the third round. Noteboom could serve as the swing tackle while being groomed as the eventual successor to Andrew Whitworth at left tackle. Special teams contributions will also be a priority as several core players are expected to fill larger roles this season. __ — Because he isn’t likely to play more than a series or two in Friday’s preseason opener Cheap JK Scott Jersey , Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford has a few modest goals for the Lions offense. “Just execute and communicate at a high level,” Stafford said Wednesday. “Get out there and communicate and make sure everybody’s on the same page. At the end of the day, on offense if everybody’s communicating on the same page you’re going to have a chance to be successful. That’s the biggest thing, go out there and make sure that we’re just playing good, sound football.” The Lions spent the past two days conducting joint workouts with Oakland at the Raiders’ training camp facilities in the heart of Napa Valley wine country. Following Tuesday’s 2 1/2-hour practice Eduardo Escobar Minnesota Twins Jersey , which was highlighted by a multi-player brawl that ended a team scrimmage session, the Lions packed up to travel to a hotel 75 miles south of Napa where they’ll stay until Friday’s game. Detroit first-year coach Matt Patricia declined to say how much Stafford and the rest of the Lions starters will play. “I’m just trying to get through today’s practice and make sure I get everybody going in the right direction,” Patricia said prior to Tuesday’s practice. “We’ll find out on Friday.” The Lions’ first offense had an uneven day against the Raiders during the team scrimmage. They were flagged for three penalties and sputtered on their initial drive before Stafford found wide receivers Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr. for deep completions. “I feel physically good,” Stafford said. “Obviously another year in the system is going to hopefully help me expand my ability within the system to get us into the best plays possible. I feel very comfortable at the line of scrimmage doing our thing, but I can always be better. I’m always trying to find ways to improve and to get the ball to those playmakers at a higher clip.” Stafford passed for 4 DJ Chark Color Rush Jersey ,446 yards with 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2017, his seventh consecutive season with 4,200 yards or more. The 30-year-old quarterback also had a career-best 99.3 passer rating. Detroit, which hasn’t made it past the wild card round of the playoffs since 1991, won three of its final four games down the stretch but failed to advance to the postseason. Although he won’t be on the field very long Friday Authentic Customized Titans Jerseys , Stafford is relishing playing in a game after mostly practicing against Detroit’s defense before the two workouts with Oakland. “It’s a good change-up,” Stafford said. “We have to go out and prepare for another defense a night before. You don’t have a ton of time to look at them. You just go out there and try to execute your stuff as well as you can. I’ve got players on this team that I’ve never played an NFL game with before so it’s going to be to see how they go about their business and how they react.” Tuesday’s practice got chippy when Lions defensive end Anthony Zettel hit Raiders backup guard Jon Feliciano from the side, sparking a fracas involving multiple players before they were eventually pulled apart. .

Captain Steven Stamkos and high-scoring Nikita Kucherov garner lots of attention. However Youth James Washington Jersey , the Tampa Bay Lightning are hardly a two-man show. The top seed in the Eastern Conference got early goals from four players – none of them named Stamkos or Kucherov – before holding off the New Jersey Devils for a 5-2 victory Thursday night in Game 1 of the first-round series. Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson and Yanni Gourde scored, helping the Lightning build a 3-0 lead that New Jersey trimmed to one goal before Alex Killorn and Kucherov, who added an empty-netter with 1:12 remaining, finished off the win before a crowd of 19,092. ”Not the outcome we wanted,” Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid said ”That’s why it’s a series and not a game.” Taylor Hall scored an unassisted goal off a turnover in the second period, then assisted on Travis Zajac’s power-play goal that trimmed the Devils’ deficit to 3-2 midway through third against Andrei Vasilevskiy, who had 29 saves for Tampa Bay, which held off Boston in the final week of the season for the best record in the East. For the Devils, a shaky opening period was too much to overcome. ”I don’t know what happened. That’s the way hockey goes sometimes. Starting on time is a big part of hockey, and especially playoff hockey,” Hall said. ”We have to be a team that’s ready to battle right off the bat and just be aware that they have more than one line; more than Stamkos and Kucherov. They have a lot of dangerous guys and we have to be aware.” The line of Palat, Johnson and Brayden Point, matched up against New Jersey’s top line, produced a pair of first-period goals and finished with six points. Killorn’s shot over Kincaid’s glove restored a two-goal lead before Kucherov, who led the Lightning with 100 points this season, ensured there would be no comeback. ”I thought we played really well. I thought we played within our structure Adidas Alex Ovechkin Jersey ,” said Johnson, who also had an assist on Palat’s goal. ”You’ve got to give Jersey credit. They pushed in that second period. That third period, I thought we took it back over. `If we continue to play like that, I like our chances this series.” Game 2 is Saturday at Amalie Arena. Tampa Bay beat the Devils for the first time this year. The Devils won all three meetings between the teams during the regular season, with each game decided by one goal. Kinkaid entered his first career playoff game as one of the hottest goalies in the league, going 7-0-1 over his last eight starts to help New Jersey grab its first playoff berth since the Devils reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012. The Lightning, on the other hand, have been driven all season by failing to make the playoffs last spring after making deep runs previous two years. With Kucherov and Stamkos leading the way, Tampa Bay paced the NHL in scoring and Vasilevskiy set a franchise record and tied for the league lead with 44 victories in his first season as a No. 1 goaltender. But after reaching the Stanley Cup Finals in 2015 and coming within one victory of a return trip two years ago, this season ultimately will be judged on whether the Lightning can put together another strong bid to win it all. ”Last year was the first year that I missed the playoffs in any league. I’ve never had a long summer like that and that summer felt like forever,” said Johnson, who has 22 goals in 48 career playoff games. ”So I’m glad where we’re at right now. I’m excited to be back at this time,” Johnson added. ”It’s the best hockey. It’s the most fun you can play in.” While the Devils did a nice job of containing the high-scoring Kucherov and Stamkos, Palat, Johnson, Killorn and Gourde, who set a Lightning rookie record with 25 goals this season, showed why it’s so difficult to totally shut down Tampa Bay’s offense. The momentum shifted on New Jersey’s first power-play opportunity. Even though the Devils didn’t score Redskins Pernell McPhee Jersey , they got off five shots against Vasilevskiy, who weathered the barrage before Hall broke through after Palat turned the puck over in the Lightning zone. ”We looked a little bit tentative, a little bit unsure, but I thought we settled into the game, particularly in the second period,” Devils coach John Hynes said. ”I thought the second half of the game was a little more of how we wanted to play. We’ll regroup and we’ll be a better team Saturday.” Notes: Stamkos returned to Tampa Bay’s lineup after missing the final three games of the regular season with a lower body injury. … It’s the third time the Devils and Lightning have met in the playoffs. New Jersey won both previous series, advancing in the 2003 Eastern Conference semifinals in five games and ending a 2007 quarterfinal matchup in six. … Zajac and captain Andy Greene are the only players remaining on New Jersey’s roster from the Devils’ 2012 postseason run. — The retirement of Joe Thomas left a gaping hole at left tackle for the Cleveland Browns. Left guard Joel Bitonio is willing, but not necessarily eager to succeed his close friend at the position. ”If they want me to do that, like, cool, whatever makes the Browns better,” Bitonio said. ”But I think left tackle is the toughest spot on the line, and after playing left guard for four years, going on five now, it would definitely be different. ”I don’t think it’s a thing where I have to volunteer for the spot, but if we get down the line and something needs to happen, we’ll see what happens there.” Though Bitonio isn’t a household name outside of Cleveland, he is one of a handful of known quantities on a team that went winless in 2017 and is 1-31 in two seasons under coach Hue Jackson. The 6-foot-4 Cowboys Mike White Jersey , 305-pounder was a second alternate for the Pro Bowl and did not miss a play last year, helping the Browns average 4.46 yards per rush to rank sixth in the NFL. Offensive line coach Bob Wylie acknowledged that bumping Bitonio, an All-Mountain West left tackle at Nevada, to the outside is tempting, but not palatable because it would simultaneously create a weakness at guard. ”The state of the left tackle is our state of the union,” Wylie said. ”But (moving Bitonio) is the last option. If you were going to go from A down, that would be Z. That would be Z.” Thomas was the face of the franchise for 11 seasons, earning 10 Pro Bowl selections and playing 10,363 consecutive snaps before suffering a career-ending torn left triceps last Oct. 22 against Tennessee. Third-year pro Shon Coleman has the first shot to fill his shoes, while second-rounder Austin Corbett and former No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson are in the mix. Coleman was pulled off the field Sunday during practice and received an audible scolding by Jackson. Center JC Tretter, right guard Kevin Zeitler and Bitonio each expressed hope that one of the top three candidates can win the job and keep their three-man interior unit intact. ”I’m excited to work with them again and, hopefully, be a dominant inside group,” said Bitonio, a second-round selection by Cleveland in 2014. ”I’ve become really good friends with JC and Kevin, so we’re kind of bonding and I think the sky is the limit. We’re continuing to grow together.” Tretter said the uncertainty at left tackle hasn’t affected Bitonio during training camp, nor does he expect it to, because he is a ”real pro.” Jackson wants to make a decision before the Browns’ third preseason game on Aug. 23 against the Eagles Authentic Terrell Edmunds Jersey , putting Coleman on the hot seat to produce or force the staff to contemplate option Z. ”I know that Joel will do anything for the football team, but hopefully we do not have to go to that,” Jackson said. ”But if we do, we do. Once we get a feel for what we have there, then as a group we’ve got to make a decision on how to continue to move forward.” Bitonio is hoping for the best, and hoping to stay where he feels most comfortable. All 47 of his NFL games have been played as a starting left guard. ”Right now, I’m really focused on playing left guard and trying to get whoever is playing next to me ready to play left tackle,” he said. ”I think anything else is something that’s pretty far down the line.” NOTES Rookie QB Baker Mayfield impressed Jackson with several sharp passes. ”Baker is deadly accurate with the ball,” the coach said. ”He’s an outstanding listener who has been everything a quarterback can be for an organization so far.” . DE Myles Garrett, the top overall pick in 2017, and RB Duke Johnson were given the day off, along with LB Jamie Collins. WR Corey Coleman also was scheduled to rest, but declined the offer. .

>WASHINGTON 鈥?The 2018 NFL Draft begins Thursday night Jim Kelly Jersey , and the Washington Redskins need everything.I know it sounds a tad hyperbolic to say that about a 7-9 team that narrowly missed the playoffs, but it’s true. Think the Redskins are set at QB? Alex Smith has three to four years here, tops. Like the cornerback depth? Surely you forgot Kendall Fuller is gone and Josh Norman is 30 years old. Good at tight end? Jordan Reed is injury-prone and Vernon Davis is 34 years old.That said, some of the Redskins’ positional needs are more dire than others. They probably won’t burn their first-round pick on a QB since the demand is high and the best prospects are expected to be long gone by the time Washington’s 13th overall pick comes around.So, here are the five players (in my order of value) the Redskins should select when they’re on the clock in Round 1 http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tarvarius-moore-jersey , and whom they should target in the ensuing rounds.1a. Vita Vea 鈥?DT, WashingtonNFL general managers almost universally say they’ll take the best player available with their picks. Vea is probably the best player available outside the top 10 of the draft, demonstrating a rare combination of size and agility that reminds some of a young Haloti Ngata. If I’m Redskins GM Doug Williams (and ‘Skins fans should thank the sweet baby Jesus I’m not), I sprint to the stage to hand Roger Goodell a card with Vea’s name on it.(Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) Like WTOP on Facebook and follow WTOP on to engage in conversation about this article and others.漏 2018 WTOP.

BALTIMORE — The Boston Red Sox will try to complete a three-game sweep of the slumping Baltimore Orioles when the two teams meet for a Wednesday matinee at Oriole Park. Boston (46-22) won the first two games of this series, including Tuesday’s 6-4 victory. Chris Sale (5-4 Youth Mike McGlinchey Jersey , 2.83 ERA) will pitch for Boston on Wednesday against Yefry Ramirez, who will make his major-league debut. Sale has lost his last three starts. He pitched well against the White Sox on Friday in his last start, allowing one run on six hits in eight innings — with 10 strikeouts — but still took the loss as Chicago scored a 1-0 victory. He has pitched effectively against the Orioles in his career, going 5-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 15 games, including nine starts Authentic Will Dissly Jersey , and will try to give the Red Sox their ninth win in 10 games versus Baltimore this season. The Orioles are struggling on offense right now, a big reason the team has lost six in a row and 13 of their last 15 games. Ramirez will be called up from Triple-A Norfolk as the Orioles placed Andrew Cashner on the disabled list Tuesday due to a lower back strain. They also brought up relief pitcher Donnie Hart from Norfolk. Cashner had been scheduled to start Wednesday’s game but Ramirez instead will get his first chance to pitch in the majors. The Red Sox also will have Mookie Betts in the lineup. Betts had been out since May 26 with a left abdominal strain before being surprisingly activated before Monday’s 2-0 victory. He went 1-for-5 and manager Alex Cora took him out after the top of the 11th inning so Betts would not be pushed too much on his first day back. Betts did not play in Tuesday’s win, but he and Cora said it was more just to ease him back in slowly. “He was going to play two out of three anyway,” Cora said before Tuesday’s game. “Yesterday we extended him a little bit. He’ll start tomorrow.” Betts also leads the major league All-Star Game voting as the Red Sox likely will have a few players on the American League team. The Orioles’ best chance for that game will be Manny Machado, who returned to the Baltimore lineup Tuesday after missing a game due to an illness. Baltimore ran into the same problems Tuesday that have plagued its lineup all season – an inability to score without homers and not being able to get the big hit at the right time. The Orioles went just 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position and stranded 13 baserunners overall. There were just too many missed chances once again. Baltimore has just a .227 team batting average after the Tuesday loss — and it won’t get any easier in the series finale with Sale starting and the solid bullpen waiting behind him. “You’ve got a guy like Sale starting tomorrow http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-rasheem-green-jersey ,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the media afterward. “They feel pretty confident about their bullpen. They’ve got eight of them down there.” .

The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to a five-year extension with wide receiver Brandin Cooks. The Rams traded their first- and sixth-round picks in the 2018 draft to the New England Patriots for Cooks and a fourth-round pick earlier this year. Cooks will replace Sammy Watkins Authentic Customized Colts Jerseys , who left for Kansas City in free agency, and provide a deep threat for quarterback Jared Goff and the Rams, who had the NFL's highest-scoring offense last season. Cooks was entering the final season of his contract and is happy to be staying in Los Angeles for the next several years. "I just knew this was a place that I want to be for a really long time," he said. "As far as the years and all of that, I just let them handle that, my agent handle that, and just knowing I wanted to be here for a really long time. "They took care of that in the way they thought was best and we agreed with it. Other than that I'm just excited to get Game One in, let alone years James Paxton Seattle Mariners Jersey , so that's what I'm focused on now." Before joining the Rams, Cooks played in 58 regular-season games with 46 starts, and had at least 1,000 yards receiving in each of the past three seasons. The fifth-year pro has 280 receptions for 3,943 yards and 27 touchdowns, and averages 14.1 yards per reception. He had nine 100-plus yard receiving games in 2016 with the New Orleans Saints. "Brandin Cooks has shown himself to be a class act on and off the field since the first day he joined our team," Rams coach Sean McVay said in a statement. "He's a proven professional in this league, and signing him to a long-term contract was always our goal. We're excited to keep Brandin in a Rams uniform through 2023." Bobby Wagner reacted as though he was hoping the question would come. With all the changes on the Seattle Seahawks defense 鈥?the leaders Donte Jackson Jersey Elite , the voices, the veterans no longer around 鈥?will there be a new focus on a group of linebackers that at times has seemed underappreciated? "It has always been about the guy in the middle," Wagner said emphatically. "So for me, it's not no different because that's how I look at it, but from the outside maybe it is different because those guys are gone and you guys are looking for someone who is going to be that leader. Y'all ain't got to look. You're looking at the guy right here. I will be that guy and we're going to be fine." And with that, any question about who the leading voice is on Seattle's defense was quickly answered. For most of the past half-decade, Seattle's highly regarded defense was defined by the secondary with the catchy nickname and the flashy personalities. From there, attention often shifted to the defensive line and the type of chaos Michael Bennett and others created on 鈥?and sometimes off 鈥?the field. Then there was Wagner and fellow linebacker K.J. Wright. They have been regarded as two of the best in the league at their positions and sometimes have received that level of recognition. But they were often relegated to a secondary role on their own team in terms of recognition even with Wagner being voted first-team All-Pro three times and Wright being a Pro Bowl selection. "The attention has gone elsewhere http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tanner-lee-jersey , I guess," Wright said. "Nothing will change. We'll still be the bad-ass linebackers on this team. We'll still lead the way. Stuff will still be run in order. We'll still make plays and it'll be fun out there." Seattle's offseason defensive overhaul saw Bennett, Richard Sherman and Sheldon Richardson find new homes; Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor step away from the game due to neck injuries, and Earl Thomas hold out in search of a new contract. There are changes everywhere across Seattle's defensive alignment, with the exception of the linebackers. Wagner has been calling Seattle's defense from the moment he arrived in the NFL and became a starter as a rookie. His partner the entire time has been Wright. With the departures, those voices they've used together for the past six seasons will be even louder. "Yeah, they had the name, they got a lot of the attention and now the attention may shift to the linebackers http://www.saintsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-natrell-jamerson-jersey ," Wagner said. "But we pride ourselves on being the guys that lead this team and that has been my mindset since I stepped in. I had coach Norton teach me the way." Ken Norton Jr. has returned to Seattle to be the defensive coordinator. He was a mentor for Wagner and Wright as the linebackers coach when both arrived in the NFL. Now he's returned with an even bigger imprint on what Seattle does defensively. "He's the linebackers guy and he put that responsibility more on us. He calls on me in the meeting room to answer most of the questions, calls on Bobby to answer the questions because he knows that we're all on the same page," Wright said. "He knows that we're the guys that can share our leadership abilities, share our knowledge of the game. He's putting that on us." There may also be some schematic tweaks that give Wagner and Wright more freedom defensively. Wright said he believes the adjustments will make Seattle more fundamentally sound defensively and the linebackers could be the benefactors. "I think this defense is hungry," Wright said. "We have a lot to prove. Myself, the secondary with all the guys leaving, the (defensive) line with the guys leaving. It's going to be fun because you've got guys who want to come and show who they are." .

鈥?Sending two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay for two draft picks gives the New York Giants much-needed salary cap space for 2019 and allows the Buccaneers to continue rebuilding a line that had the fewest sacks in the NFL last season.With the unexpected trade announced Thursday Dolphins Mike Gesicki Jersey , the Giants take another step in their rebuilding under new general manager Dave Gettleman and the Bucs upgraded their defense in a bid to end a decade-long playoff drought.The Giants will get Tampa Bay’s third-round pick (69th overall) in the draft in late April. The teams also will swap fourth-round picks, with the Bucs moving up to the 102nd pick and the Giants selecting 108th.“Jason is an elite-level edge rusher who will make an immediate impact on our defense,” Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said in a story posted on the team’s website . “We are adding a two-time Pro Bowler who is passionate about the game and has established himself as one of the league’s premier defensive ends.”Later in the day, the Giants announced they had terminated the contract of wide receiver and special teams player Dwayne Harris, who missed the final 11 games with a broken foot.While the Pierre-Paul trade only clears up a couple of million dollars in cap space this year, the benefit for the Giants 鈥?who were 3-13 last season 鈥?will be in 2019 when it sheds roughly $18 million in cap space. That will be important with safety Landon Collins and receiver Odell Beckham Jr. both possibly looking for new contracts.The effects will be more immediate for the Bucs, who were 5-11 last season and had 22 sacks.Pierre-Paul, who had 8陆 sacks last season and 58陆 since being drafted with the 15th pick overall in 2010, joins a team that recently signed two members of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, defensive end Vinny Curry and tackle Beau Allen. Former Bears tackle Mitch Unrein also was signed.They join returning six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy on a Bucs’ line that hasn’t had a player finish with double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice in 2005.Not only does Pierre-Paul give the Bucs a pass rusher Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey , the 29-year-old is an every-down player who has overcome a fireworks accident in 2015 that severely damaged his right hand. He signed a $62 million contract last year.“We appreciate everything Jason has done for the Giants,” Gettleman said. “He was a fine player for us.”Pierre-Paul had 68 tackles, 8陆 sacks and two forced fumbles last season. He has played in 111 regular-season games with 85 starts, including all 16 games in 2017. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2011 and ’12 and All Pro in 2011, when he had a career-high 16.5 sacks, the fourth-highest total in Giants history, and helped New York win a Super Bowl.Pierre-Paul also forced 13 fumbles and recovered seven, including one he returned for a touchdown. He intercepted two passes, returning each for a score. He also had defended 47 passes.The move also sends Pierre-Paul back to Florida. He attended the University of South Florida and played high school football in the state.The Giants are moving to a 3-4 defensive alignment under new coordinator James Bettcher, although they will continue to use some 4-3 formations.This is Gettleman’s second trade since replacing Jerry Reese. He acquired linebacker Alec Ogletree from the Los Angeles Rams for fourth and sixth-round draft choices.The Giants will have six picks in the draft Youth Calvin Ridley Jersey , including the second overall. They also have the second pick in the second round (No. 34), two third-rounders (Nos. 66 and 69), the Bucs’ fourth-rounder and the second pick in the fifth round (No. 139). They traded their seventh-round pick to Pittsburgh last year for cornerback Ross Cockrell.Harris did not have a catch last season. He had played in all 16 games with one start in 2016 and was selected for the Pro Bowl as a special teamer.In his first season with New York in 2015, he played in 15 games with six starts and had a career-high 36 receptions for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He finished third in the NFL with a 28.7-yard average on 22 kickoff returns, including a 100-yard touchdown return against Dallas. He also averaged 10 yards on 34 punt returns, including an 80-yard touchdown against the Jets.Harris was the third player in Giants’ history with kickoff and punt return touchdowns in the same season, the first in 60 years.AP Sports Writer Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, contributed to this report.

Manziel is looking to fix his career after flopping with the Cleveland Browns, and the Alouettes certainly hope that he can be part of the solution here.Manziel became a media sensation after a successful tenure at Texas A&M, where he spent two years and captured the 2012 Heisman Trophy. But Manziel's excessive partying off the field was well-documented, and it led to him falling in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft.The Cleveland Browns drafted Manziel 22nd pick that year, but Manziel struggled to maintain good behavior, broke team curfew and was spotted partying aplenty off the field. After two frustrating seasons Authentic Ryan Johansen Jersey , the Browns released Manziel in 2016.In February, Manziel appeared on Good Morning America and revealed that he was fighting bipolar disorder and alcohol addictions.

But in Manziel, they land an extraordinary athlete whose dual threat style should help them take the offense to another level.Manziel is one of the most covered athletes across the United States, so his debut this Friday promises to bring strong television ratings on both sides of the border. Now, we just wait and see if he can become the superstar we didn't get to see in the NFL..

Aaron Rodgers sounds as if he's more worried about swimming with sharks than a new contract. Starting training camp without an extension from the Green Bay Packers is not really that big a deal to the two-time NFL MVP. "I've seen a lot of stuff you guys have either written or that's been written about it Jason Witten Jersey ," Rodgers said Thursday. "I talk with my agent daily, so I'm aware of conversations. But I'm really not too worried about it." He's under contract through the 2019 season, though NFL salaries continue to escalate. Star receiver Julio Jones showed up for Atlanta Falcons camp on Thursday after the sides reached agreement to renegotiate Jones' deal next year, avoiding a potential holdout. Not Rodgers' style. "I don't really operate like that. I have two years left on my deal," Rodgers said when asked if he could consider holding out to turn up pressure. "They're obviously more than willing to talk about an extension. There wasn't any animosity on either side." Team president Mark Murphy is hopeful there will be an agreement, too, at some point. "I don't want to put a timeframe on it, but I'm confident we'll work it out," Murphy said after the Packers' annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday night. So there was Rodgers back to work for the first day of camp on Thursday. One of his first throws was a deep pass for receiver Randall Cobb, who was covered tightly by Kevin King. The cornerback went up and wrestled for the ball before appearing to come away with the pick. "That wasn't an interception," Rodgers said. So competitive, even in late July. The quarterback fed his curiosity too when he appeared on an episode of the Discovery Channel show "Monster Tag " in which he put on scuba gear and dove into the Pacific Ocean to help tag a blue shark . It was a Shark Week special on the network, in which scientists studied sharks and ways to help preserve the population. It might be easier to stiff arm a linebacker. "I'm a lot more scared in the water," Rodgers said. Staying upright in the pocket seems as if it's a less stressful task. Protection could get a huge boost if 6-foot-5 veteran right tackle Bryan Bulaga remains on track to come back from a right ACL injury. The right side of the line was in question in the offseason after Bulaga got hurt last season. He has progressed well enough to the point that coach Mike McCarthy hopes that Bulaga will be ready for Week 1, even if the tackle is starting camp on the physically unable to perform list as a precaution. Getting Bulaga back would leave right guard as the only position up front for the Packers to find a new starter after Jahri Evans wasn't re-signed as a free agent. "I'm optimistic about it http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-alex-mcgough-jersey , yeah," Bulaga said about targeting the season opener. "Yeah I'm disappointed that I started on PUP. Been a tough road rehabbing and getting back to this point ... but that's part of the process and I've got to keep going." Notes: King, the team's top draft pick last year, also broke up a pass to Geronimo Allison on the next play after his interception. King played through a shoulder injury for much of last season before getting shut down in December. Healthy again, King displayed the type of talent that makes the Packers hopeful that they can improve in the secondary this season. "I made a couple plays where I got tangled up and had to go to the ground. I feel good," King said. ... McCarthy said he also thinks veteran OLB Nick Perry (ankle) will be ready for the season opener after starting camp on the PUP list. ... OLB Clay Matthews may wear a visor on his helmet this season to help protect his surgically repaired nose. It got broken last month during a charity softball game after Matthews, who was pitching, was hit by a line drive by teammate Lucas Patrick. "So I ate it, walked off the field so as to not create mass hysteria, and proceeded to go through the route of surgery and all that fun stuff," Matthews said wryly in recounting the accident. "So two weeks I'll never get back thanks to Lucas Patrick over there." This version corrects a typo to show that Matthews was hit by the line drive. NHL executives, coaches and players are quick to say the game is faster than ever and there is technology available to track how quickly players skate and how hard they shoot. Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee calls it the ”next wave” in the evolution of the top hockey league in the world, but what happens to that information is secret for now. ”I don’t tell people what we do,” McPhee said as his Pacific Division champion team prepares for its playoff opener against the Los Angeles Kings. Younger, faster – and cheaper – players are pushing out older Dolphins Authentic Jerseys , slower – and more expensive – veterans to kick the pace of the game up a notch. When Radim Vrbata announced he was retiring after this season, the 36-year-old Florida Panthers forward acknowledged the speed of the game played a part in his decision to leave the league. ”The speed of the game has really jumped over the last couple of years,” Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said. ”You can tell with your eyes. We don’t have any chips in jerseys or any of that stuff.” The league is working with a company, or companies, it will not disclose to use camera-based technology to track players and pucks. ”We are still in the evaluation stage,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in an email. ”We have generally shared the results of our testing as part of an overview of the technology as opposed to on a team or player basis. Ultimately, I would envision most (although maybe not all) of the acquired data would be made available to the clubs, and the public.” Iceberg Sports Analytics, which says it is working with the NHL, uses cameras to track the players and the puck 10 times per second. ”We get a limitless amount of information from these coordinates collected by using machine/deep learning algorithms,” Iceberg global sales director Scott Vargas said. For a while at least, the public may be kept in the dark on some of those details. At the 2018 Winter Olympics , microchips were put in the back of jerseys tracking cameras were perched high above the ice. Data on speed, acceleration, stopping Kyle Long Jersey , distance traveled, shift lengths and ice time was available to teams. How fast a player skated sometimes flashed up video boards in the arena, much to the chagrin of former NHL defenseman James Wisniewski. ”I think for people on TV to see how fast you’re going down the wing, really, does it really matter?” Wisniewski asked. Daly said open questions include how quickly the tracking will grow and which technologies are used. But he believes it will eventually become prevalent in the NHL and in other major professional sports leagues. ”Fans and other observers of the game want and demand more and more information all the time,” Daly said. ”It enhances the way they consume the sport. And it is incumbent on us to respond to and satisfy that demand.” The NHL Players’ Association, meanwhile, will only say it is ready for more dialogue on the topic. ”We look forward to continuing our discussions with the league to ensure the successful implementation of player and puck tracking,” NHLPA general counsel Don Zavelo said. Even in the Detroit Red Wings‘ dressing room, there wasn’t a consensus. ”If you track players and show how fast you’re skating, I think fans will be able to appreciate it and it will look cool on TV,” Red Wings center Dylan Larkin said . Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg provided another perspective. ”I’m not a big fan of that because eventually that will be used as a disadvantage for players,” Zetterberg said. ”Even though they say it won’t be, it will be in contracts and it will be used against players in all different areas with management and coaching issues.” Daly insisted he doesn’t buy that argument. ”Our experience with enhanced statistics is entirely the opposite,” Daly said. ”Players and agents have historically and virtually without exception been able to use enhanced statistics and analytics to their individual benefit. That’s just a fact.” It is also true Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey Elite , without debate, the league’s large, lumbering defensemen have been replaced by smaller, faster players on the blue line. And up front, the days of having enforcers play limited minutes to rough up opponents are over because every team tries to roll four lines of swift skaters who can match up with the best opponents. When teams turn the puck over in the neutral zone, it is coming back at them in a hurry. Retreating and regrouping is more rare these days. Kings President Luc Robitaille said beyond scoring chances for and against, how quickly his team and opponents get the puck up the ice is an important statistic. ”Everyone is measuring how fast you’re moving the puck end to end,” he said, declining to share details. ”Teams that have success are moving faster. Look at Vegas,” Robitaille added. ”Everyone has been wondering why they’re winning and it is because they have a lot of guys with speed.” Rule changes, philosophical shifts by teams and improved training are among the contributing factors to create the need for speed. After the league emerged from a lockout in 2005, players were allowed to make longer passes up the ice to create more scoring chances and officials were told to have zero tolerance for clutching-and-grabbing defensive tactics. ”When the red line was taken out of the game that sped the game up,” Tampa Bay coach Jon .

The point is, I want the Giants, because I convinced my Cowboys can beat the Giants, thatthe third time would be the charm. And I will be the first to admit to you, I do fear Aaron Rodgers.

The youth movement is alive and thriving for the Boston Celtics. And for the second straight game it was enough to upend a Philadelphia 76ers team that still has much to figure out as it heads home trailing 2-0 in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 21 points and hit a pair of free throws in the closing seconds Harold Landry Youth Jersey , helping the Celtics rally from a 22-point deficit to beat the 76ers 108-103 on Thursday night. Terry Rozier added 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Marcus Smart finished with 19 points and five rebounds as the Celtics improved to 6-0 at TD Garden this postseason. They have never blown a 2-0 lead. ”Coach was saying whoever is the tougher team is going to win,” Rozier said. ”They definitely punched us in the mouth at the beginning of the game. We just had to bounce back and get things together.” Game 3 is Saturday in Philadelphia. J.J. Redick had 23 points for the 76ers, making five 3-pointers. Robert Covington added 22 points and nine rebounds. Joel Embiid finished with 20 points, 14 rebounds and five assists, but rookie star Ben Simmons missed all four shots and had just one point. ”Mentally, just thinking too much,” Simmons said of his tough night. ”I’m going to have bad games. It happens. Obviously, it’s bad timing.” Philadelphia recovered after squandering its big lead to nudge back in front 93-88 midway through the fourth quarter. But an 11-4 run put Boston back in the lead 99-95 with less than four minutes to play. It was 101-97 when a missed Philadelphia jumper led to a 2-on-1 fast break and alley-oop dunk from Rozier to Tatum with 2:23 left. A layup by Dario Saric cut it to 104-101. But Al Horford was able to drive past Embiid for a layup with 8.3 seconds left. Saric scored out of a timeout to make it 106-103. The Sixers quickly fouled Tatum, who calmly hit a pair of free throws. Following an anemic offensive effort in Game 1 Cheap Derwin James Jersey , the Sixers looked rejuvenated early in Game 2, using a 14-2 run to begin the second quarter on their way to building a 48-26 lead. It didn’t last. The Celtics responded by ending the half on a 25-8 run. It included three straight 3-pointers and a tip-dunk by Jaylen Brown, who returned to action after sitting out the series opener with a strained right hamstring. He came off the bench and played 25 minutes, scoring 13 points and grabbing four rebounds. The Sixers’ lead was completely erased midway through the third quarter, when Aron Baynes got a 3-pointer to bounce in and put Boston in front for the first time. The lead grew to 76-68 on a baseline dunk by Tatum that capped a 50-20 Celtics run. ”Once we got on that run we never looked back,” Rozier said. Brown entered the game for the first time at the 7:14 mark of first quarter. It took less than a minute to make an impact. He missed his first shot attempt before chasing down a loose ball and sprinting ahead for a one-handed dunk . Prior to Thursday, Brown had started every game he’d appeared in this season. It was his first time off the bench since Game 5 of last season’s Eastern Conference Finals. ”They won two games at home and we have to reciprocate,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said. ”There’s not going to be a pity party.” TIP-INS 76ers: Outrebounded the Celtics 49-41. … Went 13 of 33 from the 3-point line. Celtics: The 22-point comeback victory represents their largest come-from-behind playoff victory since Game 4 of the 2008 NBA Finals (24 pts). … Went 15 of 36 from the 3-point line. HE SAID IT ”It’s like a movie. You only see these type of comebacks in movies.” – Celtics guard Marcus Smart. SLOW START Despite Brown’s early highlight, the Celtics were sluggish early. They started off the game 0 for 5 and didn’t score until Smart’s 3-pointer at the 8:37 mark of the first quarter. Horford (1 for 3), Rozier (0 for 4) Walter Payton Jersey Youth , Brown (1 for 4) and Marcus Morris (0 for 3) were a combined 2 for 14 in the period, allowing Philadelphia to build a 31-22. CELEB SIGHTINGS Philadelphia-born rapper Meek Mill sat courtside for Game 2. Mill was released from jail last week after spending nearly five months behind bars on a probation violation. Rapper Gucci Mane sat across from the 76ers bench wearing a Brown jersey. The two met last year when Brown attended one of his concerts. Another Philly native, actor Kevin Hart, sat a few seats down from Gucci. Hart at times antagonized the TD Garden fans, drawing boos. — The NHL has told Brad Marchand to stop licking opponents or the Boston Bruins forward will face punishment. Senior vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell spoke to Marchand and Bruins general manager Don Sweeney on Saturday about Marchand’s actions against Tampa Bay a night earlier. Marchand licked Lightning forward Ryan Callahan on the face during Game 4 of their second-round series after appearing to do the same to Toronto’s Leo Komarov earlier in the playoffs. The league says Marchand has been put on notice that his actions are unacceptable and that similar behavior in the future will be dealt with through supplemental discipline. He could be fined or suspended by the NHL if he continues to lick players. ”All I’m going to say is there is absolutely no place in our game for that,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. ”I don’t get it, I don’t understand it. How would you feel if I walked over to you right now and gave you one big lick? Right from the chin all the way up. There’s just no place in the game for that.” After the game, an overtime loss that put Boston down 3-1 in the series, Marchand said Callahan punched him in the face four times. ”He just kept getting close,” Marchand said. ”Nothing big.” Told that Callahan compared licking to spitting and said it should be penalized accordingly Connor Williams Youth Jersey , Marchand said: ”That’s cute. Good for him.” Marchand’s antics were the talk of rinks on Saturday. Penguins forward Tom Kuhnhackl said it was impossible to avoid hearing about Marchand licking Callahan because it was all over social media. When asked if one benefit of wearing a full face shield was protection from being licked, Pittsburgh’s Carl Hagelin said: `I’m not going to answer that. Funny question, though.” Some Winnipeg players watched the game while in Nashville and had a variety of reactions. Jets forward Adam Lowry said he probably would’ve punched Marchand – the kind of response the known instigator likely was looking for – while coach Paul Maurice said, ”It gives me the willies.” ”It’s a play I’ve never seen happen before in hockey,” Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey said. ”That’s the thing in the playoffs. Crazy stuff goes on and you have to keep a level head.” Predators players talked among themselves about Marchand, asking each other what they would do in that situation. ”It would kind of be funny, but in the moment it probably wouldn’t be very funny,” defenseman P.K. Subban. ”I’m sure looking back you’re like, `I got licked in a hockey game.’ It’s just weird, you know?” For all the trash-talking Kolton Miller Raiders Jersey , pushing and shoving that goes on in hockey, especially with the Stanley Cup as the ultimate prize, the line is usually drawn at spitting. Licking is just as unsanitary and, to most players, unwelcome. ”It’s like spitting on someone. It’s extremely disrespectful,” Lowry said. ”You got to respect your opponents. I get playing hard in a series and there might be some dislike between guys, but there’s a certain line that shouldn’t be crossed and that’s one of them.” — AP Sports Writers Teresa M.

Everything was going Clay Buchholz’s way. Then Tremaine Edmunds Bills Jersey , a swing-and-miss led to an injury that turned what could have been a gem into a routine solid outing. Buchholz lasted five innings before experiencing tightness in his left side, but the Arizona Diamondbacks completed a four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 3-0 win Sunday. The right-hander retired the first 11 batters he faced before Pirates centerfielder Starling Marte doubled down the right-field line with two out in the fourth inning. Despite throwing just 53 pitches (42 strikes), he was pulled to start the sixth inning after informing manager Torey Lovullo of some pain stemming from swinging at the first pitch of his at bat in the top of the fifth. ”I’ve had oblique, whatever it is, before. It was a lot worse than this one,” Buchholz said. ”I went out (in the bottom of the fifth) and the last two outs, that’s whenever I felt it a little bit more. I was just trying to get through that inning. It’s more precautionary. I’ve gone through things before where I’ve tried to get through it, pitch through it and go another inning, but that’s always led me in the wrong direction.” Lovullo said Buchholz (2-1), who allowed two hits with five strikeouts in five innings for his first win since June 1, would continue to be evaluated throughout Sunday. More information is expected Monday. ”He was attacking the zone with the fastball and driving his fastball on both sides of the plate Isaiah Oliver Youth Jersey , and then throwing some quality secondary stuff,” Lovullo said. ”We want to give him a night to let everything calm down and evaluate him.” David Peralta’s 15th home run, which carried over the wall in right-center field before bouncing into the Allegheny River, and John Ryan Murphy’s ninth powered Arizona to its 12th win in 16 games. ”It’s nice to get a couple runs in the first, always,” Murphy said. ”I was leading off the second and was looking for a fastball. Got one in a pretty good spot.” Brad Boxberger let up a single to Austin Meadows with one out in the ninth before forcing Marte into a double play for his 17th save. Pirates right-handed starter Trevor Williams (6-5) took the loss after allowing the two-run home run to Peralta with two out in the first inning and a lead-off solo homer to Murphy, which made it 3-0 in the second. Those three runs came on five hits in six innings pitched with six strikeouts. ”Unfortunately, that was the game today,” Williams said. ”From there on, I thought I was making all my pitches and being successful the second time through the lineup.” Pittsburgh has scored eight combined runs during its current five-game losing streak after winning four of its previous five games. ”We’re going to keep playing,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. ”The season’s not going to stop. Nobody’s going to feel sorry for us. These guys are working hard in here to get better. We haven’t gotten better.” ROSTER MOVE Diamondbacks: RHP Braden Shipley was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sunday morning. RHP Jake Barrett was optioned to Reno following the game Saturday. TRAINER’S ROOM Diamondbacks: 1B Paul Goldschmidt was given the day off after homering and scoring three runs Saturday. INF Daniel Descalso took over at first base and hit fifth. Pirates: RHP Michael Feliz was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on Sunday and recalled RHP Clay Holmes from Triple-A Indianapolis. Holmes allowed one walk in two innings of relief. UP NEXT Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller (0-0 Mike Gesicki Dolphins Jersey , 0.00) is expected to come off the 60-day disabled list to make his season debut against the Marlins on Monday. After undergoing Tommy John surgery for a torn UCL sustained last season against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Miller allowed 10 runs on 20 hits with 28 strikeouts and six walks in a combined 19 1/3 innings during his four rehab starts, two with Double-A Jackson and two with Single-A Visalia. Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon (4-6, 4.03) will look to find some consistency when he starts against the New York Mets on Monday. He is 2-6 since winning his first two starts of the season against the Minnesota Twins on April 2 and the Cincinnati Reds on April 8. Josh Norman thought football was difficult. Then he appeared on ”Dancing With the Stars.” The Washington Redskins cornerback had some impressive performances with dance partner Sharna Burgess on the show in Los Angeles and each week took a red-eye back to the East Coast for the team’s offseason program. Norman and Burgess finished second to skater Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson. Norman was back on the field this week with a new appreciation for dancing and a fresh approach to his day job. ”My mindset is a bit different,” Norman said Wednesday. ”I can go further now than I thought I could and push myself to pretty much a new level, I feel, a new height. So now I look at things and I (used to) be like, `That’s hard.’ Nah, I don’t think so.” Norman didn’t quite know what to expect out of ”Dancing With the Stars,” which included 12-hour days of learning, practicing Ronald Jones II Buccaneers Jersey , rehearsing and performing . Add in the cross-country flights and Norman was more fatigued than after a one-on-one showdown with Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He approached the performances like NFL games, though, and was glad he took on the adventure that reminded him of theater class in college. ”You could be someone else,” Norman said. ”You could be different. Everybody is different in their own right, and everybody work to a common goal. Part of it is just going out there amongst athletes and trying to best them all.” Norman got a good laugh about going shirtless for dance routines because ”there’s a lot of cougars that like the shirt off” and knew voting was involved. Taking a temporary break from his pursuit of the Lombardi Trophy, Norman came away crushed that he didn’t help Burgess win the Mirrorball Trophy she has been trying for the past seven years. ”This was the year to break that curse and I wasn’t the one to do it and it’s just like, `Dang,”’ Norman said. ”It’s like a heart-throbbing gut-puncher that I couldn’t be the one for her to get over the hump.” Norman was a winner to his teammates, a handful of whom traveled to L.A. to watch the finale Monday. Running back Chris Thompson was impressed by the dance moves and felt his teammate ”got cheated.” ”I never saw Josh as being a dancer, for one,” Thompson said. ”It was great. It was just cool just to see somebody doing something different.” Coach Jay Gruden said he watched every episode and came away impressed with Norman’s rhythm Taven Bryan Jaguars Jersey , execution and willingness to balance dancing and football. ”The work that he put in to get ready for that show and also fly back out on red eyes and get here for practice or OTAs, I just really had a lot of admiration for what he did and what he accomplished because that’s not easy,” Gruden said. ”I thought he should’ve won the dang thing. I think he got ripped off, to be honest with you.” Even in a losing effort, Norman figures ”Dancing With the Stars” helped his physical and mental preparation, his footwork, posture and focus. Call it a journey of self-discovery. ”It taught me a lot about myself,” Norman said. ”I grew tremendously. I wouldn’t have wanted anything else from it than that.” With the Redskins in the middle of organized team activities, Norman was hardly breaking a sweat Wednesday after what he had been through under the lights each week dancing. ”This is a cakewalk,” he said. ”This is like picking daisies.” — .

The Latest on the parade for the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles (all times local): 4 p.m. Police are so far only reporting one act of violence after hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans hit the streets to fete their Super Bowl champion Eagles. Police say someone was stabbed about a half-block off the parade route. No details were given and the person’s condition wasn’t revealed. Throngs of adoring fans swarmed the city to see their champs parade up Broad Street. Overall Tony Romo Cowboys Jersey , the crowds were buoyant and peaceful. There’s no word on any arrests. Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney had asked fans to celebrate with passion and pride after Sunday’s wild postgame celebration was marred by small pockets of ”knuckleheads” who resorted to violence and vandalism. The biggest problem facing parade-goers Thursday afternoon was making the trip home on mass transit. One heavily used subway station was closed about an hour after the victory rally ended due to overcrowding. — 2:45 p.m. The championship Philadelphia Eagles ended their raucous, emotional rally by giving props to their fans. Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and Carson Wentz thanked the roaring crowds from the ”Rocky” steps at the art museum Thursday, and Jason Kelce gave a rousing lecture on the meaning of the word underdog for Philadelphia. It was a passionate defense of the coach and general manager and went through all the criticism they have faced over the years. Malcolm Jenkins also hit the underdog theme: ”They doubted us as players, they doubted us as a team.” The team descended the art museum steps to Meek Mill’s ”Dreams and Nightmares.” The incarcerated Philadelphia rapper’s song has become an anthem for the team this season. — 2:25 p.m. The Eagles have landed on the ”Rocky” steps. The parade is over but the Super Bowl victory rally is roling with the team descending the art museum steps to Meek Mill’s ”Dreams and Nightmares.” The incarcerated Philadelphia rapper’s song has become an anthem for the team this season. Three fighter jets buzzed overhead, as trumpeter Jesse McGuire performed ”The Star Spangled Banner.” Owner Jeffrey Lurie is telling the crowd ”Philly, you are super bowl champions. And I have one final message for you: We are just beginning. ” It’s the Eagles first NFL title in nearly 60 years. Players are taking turns thanking the roaring crowd. — 12:30 p.m. The championship Philadelphia Eagles are making their way through the jubilant throngs of fans at the city’s first-ever Super Bowl parade, but don’t expect any official estimate of the crowd size. The city has said they aren’t planning to release any crowd size estimates after Thursday’s festivities, making any number a guess as easily inflatable as a football (sorry Pats fans). But there’s certainly a massive, roaring crowd. Easily hundreds of thousands of groupies are lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route from the stadium to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps. It’s a much longer route than the Phillies had for their 2008 World Series championship parade in 2008, and more spread out than the crowds for Pope Francis’s visit in 2015. Organizers prepared for as many as 2 million people. — 11:25 a.m. The Philadelphia Eagles are thanking the fans and sharing their championship glory as the Super Bowl parade makes its way up Broad Street Minkah Fitzpatrick Dolphins Jersey , the main thoroughfare from the team’s stadium to city hall. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stood atop an open-air double-decker bus along with quarterbacks Nick Foles, Carson Wentz and third-stringer Nate Sudfeld as they made their way through the throngs. Lurie held a sign reading ”Thank You Fans” and a smiling Super Bowl MVP Foles brandished the Vince Lombardi trophy. Coach Doug Pederson disembarked from the bus to show off the trophy to the thrilled crowds; other players tossed T-shirts to fans along the route. And Jason Kelce walked along – dressed in full Mummers regalia looking somewhat like Aladdin – shaking hands with fans and leading them in chants. Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way to the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps. — 11 a.m. The Eagles have landed on Broad Street: The championship parade Philadelphia has dreamed about for decades is finally underway. Players are cruising along the 5-mile (8-kilometer) parade route atop open-air, double-decker buses. They started off near their stadium just before 11 a.m. Thursday and winding up at the art museum’s ”Rocky” steps. Many players are sporting their parade finest: Chris Long is donning a faux full-length fur coat over an Allen Iverson 76ers jersey. Jason Kelce is in full Mummers regalia, faintly resembling an Aladdin costume in a nod to Philadelphia’s raucous annual parade on New Year’s Day. Hundreds of thousands of roaring, jubilant fans are in position to cheer their heroes along the way. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people. — 7 a.m. All roads and rails lead to Philadelphia as fans pour into the city for the Eagles’ Super Bowl parade. People began lining the 5-mile (8-kilometer) route before dawn Thursday. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people, but the actual number may be much lower. Many fans are taking mass transit. New Jersey Transit on Wednesday suspended ticket sales on it Raptors head coach Dwane Casey knows this much about his future in Toronto: his key to the gym still works. Right now, that’s all Casey can say for certain after meeting with Toronto President Masai Ujiri Wednesday morning, with little else clear about the coach’s outlook with the organization. Ujiri said Casey has been ”unbelievable for our organization” but declined to make a firm commitment about Casey’s future, saying he needed more time to evaluate the entire team. ”We’re evaluating everything and that’s how we’re going to leave it Mitchell Trubisky Jersey ,” Ujiri said. ”It’s my responsibility as a leader to do that and we’ll go from there.” It was the first time Casey and Ujiri spoke to reporters since Toronto was swept out of the second round of the playoffs for the second straight season. Ujiri talked about his uncertainty regarding Casey’s future the same day Casey was named coach of the year by the National Basketball Coaches Association . The award is voted on by NBA head coaches. A media panel voted separately for the NBA’s coach of the year award, which will be announced June 25. Ujiri’s wait-and-see approach didn’t appear to bother Casey, who said he was aware of the questions about his job but didn’t need Ujiri to provide a public backing. ”I haven’t gone looking for a vote of confidence or anything like that because no one is saying anything different,” Casey said. ”Until they do, I’m still here, still fighting, still scratching, still meeting with players. That’s all I can do. Nobody has changed my key card, the door still opens. I’ve had some meetings with Masai talking about what we can do better next year to get over the hump.” It’s not uncommon for Ujiri to withhold definitive support for a head coach – he also declined to address Casey’s status after last year’s sweep. Ujiri said the Raptors are ”absolutely disappointed” at their playoff exit after a franchise-record 59 wins in the regular season gave Toronto the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in franchise history. That came after Ujiri demanded a ”culture reset” last spring, leading a greater emphasis on ball movement Leighton Vander Esch Jersey Elite , depth, and 3-point shooting. ”In the regular season there was good success,” Ujiri said. ”Going from last year to this year, we’re happy with the jump we made, with some of the things we said we wanted to do. We got stuck at a certain point.” While playoff results may suggest otherwise, Casey insisted ”the gap is closing” between the Raptors and Cavaliers, who ousted Toronto form the postseason for the third year in a row. ”A lot of folks have run up against Cleveland in the last few years and had the same challenge and it went down the same way,” Casey said. ”That’s the mountain this organization has to climb.” Ujiri bristled about the Raptors being the butt of jokes about their long-running struggles with the Cavs, who have won 10 straight postseason games against Toronto. ”We believe in what we’re doing here,” Ujiri said. ”We believe in the growth. We’re relevant now in the NBA. And when you get relevant Joe Thomas Jersey , now you have to meet the challenges, every day, of expectations and growing, getting bigger, and winning. And that’s what we’re going to try and do.” — .

A look at what’s happening around the majors Sunday: CHICAGO’S ACE Jon Lester has put together some ace-worthy seasons during his 13-year major league career James Daniels Jersey , including four All-Star appearances and a runner-up finish in the Cy Young voting two years ago. The Chicago Cubs left-hander is in the middle of what might prove to be his finest season so far, and he’ll look to become the National League’s first 12-game winner when he takes the mound against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Lester is 11-2 with a 2.25 ERA this season, and he’s won his last seven starts – including going 5-0 with a 1.13 ERA during June. GRADE-A OAKLAND The Oakland A’s downed Cleveland 6-3 in 11 innings on Saturday, winning for the ninth time in their last 11 games and for the 15th time in their last 19. Oakland sits at a season-high nine games over .500 and will try and stay unbeaten for a seventh straight series when it closes out its series with the Indians. Brett Anderson (0-2, 7.63) starts for the A’s, and Shane Bieber (4-0, 2.97) goes for Cleveland. GOING GREINKE Arizona starter Zack Greinke has turned around his season since posting a 5.04 ERA in April and is 9-5 with a 3.35 ERA overall, including 112 strikeouts in 109 2/3 innings. The Diamondbacks right-hander will take the mound against the San Diego Padres Joe Namath Jersey , and he comes in having allowed only two runs in his last three starts combined – a span of 19 2/3 innings. RICK’S REBOUND Rick Porcello struggled mightily to follow up his 2016 Cy Young award-winning season a year ago, finishing a disappointing 11-17 with a 4.65 ERA. The Boston right-hander has returned to form this year with a 10-3 record and 3.57 ERA, and he’ll be on the mound when the Red Sox close out their season series with the Kansas City Royals. OZUNA’S OUTAGE Since winner the NL’s Player of the Week award last month, St. Louis outfielder Marcell Ozuna has been in a prolonged funk – going 15-for-71 (.211) and failing to hit a home run during that stretch. The Cardinals left fielder was the prized offseason acquisition in a trade from Miami, coming off a season in which he hit .312 with 37 home runs and 124 RBIs. This year, Ozuna is hitting .275 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs in 83 games. — The unprecedented success enjoyed by the Vegas Golden Knights in their inaugural season carried over into the second round of their first playoff run. Now that the San Jose Sharks have home-ice advantage after a dramatic win, the question is how will Vegas bounce back from its first taste of postseason adversity? The best-of-seven series between the Golden Knights and the Sharks shifts to Silicon Valley, starting with Game 3 on Monday night. Vegas blanked the Los Angeles Kings twice and limited them to three goals in a first-round sweep. The winning ways continued as three-time Stanley Cup winner Marc-Andre Fleury posted his third shutout during this postseason Ty Montgomery Jersey Youth , 7-0 over the Sharks in Game 1 on Thursday. San Jose evened the series with a 4-3 victory in double overtime on Saturday. Fleury posted 43 saves, but Logan Couture notched the game-winner — his second goal of the night — eight seconds after Vegas defenseman Jon Merrill was sent off for hooking. Less than 24 hours later, Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland refuses to dwell on the defeat. “It’s a new day today,” he said Sunday. “We lost. You didn’t expect to go through playoffs not losing a game. We’ve just got to take what we can from last game and get back at it tomorrow night.” While San Jose rallied from a two-goal deficit with three straight goals in the second period and overcame a tying goal from Nate Schmidt late in regulation, Sharks defenseman Brent Burns reminded everyone that there’s still a lot of hockey to be played. “It’s just one game,” Burns said. “Obviously we had to win it, but it’s one game.” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant didn’t rip his team for the effort but said they need to be better prepared. “We didn’t show up for 45 minutes tonight,” he said Saturday. “We didn’t play a good game tonight. We played a great game the other night Marcus Davenport Jersey , and competed and battled, and tonight we didn’t show up to play our game tonight, and it cost us big time.” Vegas went 1-0-1 at the Shark Tank during the regular season. On Feb. 8, the Golden Knights exploded with three straight goals in the final 10:24 en route to 5-3 win. On March 22, Tomas Tatar scored early, but the Sharks answered with a goal from Burns before Couture scored 39 seconds into overtime to lift San Jose to a 2-1 win. Sharks coach Peter DeBoer noted that Saturday’s win was a result of keeping true to the same message that has been communicated throughout the season. “I think we’ve always taken the approach all year that we play our game and at the end of the day, good things happen,” he said. A key to San Jose knotting the series was Martin Jones having a short memory. After yielding five goals on 13 shots in Game 1 Josh Allen Jersey , he didn’t face more than eight shots in any period in Game 2 and finished with 26 saves. “My confidence isn’t going to get shaken from one bad game. It’s not the first time I’ve had a bad game. You put that behind you. It’s why you have a routine,” said Jones, who stopped 75 of 77 shots at home in Games 3 and 4 of the Sharks’ first-round sweep of the Anaheim Ducks. One player who has been hard to stop in the postseason is Vegas center William Karlsson. He scored twice in Game 2, giving him seven points (three goals, four assists) in a four-game points streak. Karlsson enjoyed a breakout season with career highs of 43 goals and 35 assists. San Jose is expected to have winger Evander Kane back in the lineup after he served a one-game suspension for cross-checking Golden Knights center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare in Game 1. Acquired at the Feb. 26 trade deadline from the Buffalo Sabres, Kane had eight of his 14 points with the Sharks at SAP Center. That’s also where Game 4 is scheduled Wednesday night. .

The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. The Vikings waived tight end Kyle Carter on Saturday to make room for Bradford, who last played at Chicago on Oct. 9 and returned to practice last week after recovering from a left knee injury. The Vikings host New Orleans on Sunday. Bradford was stellar in the opening win against the Saints Myles Garrett Jersey Youth , but unable to play the following week. Case Keenum started the next three games. Bradford was back for the Bears game, but hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum. Teddy Bridgewater and Kyle Sloter give the Vikings four quarterbacks on the active roster. — The Minnesota Vikings have signed first-round pick Mike Hughes James Daniels Jersey , putting their entire eight-player draft class under contract the week before training camp begins. The 5-foot-10, 189-pound Hughes was the 30th overall selection Jamal Adams Jersey Youth , the highest drafted defensive player in Central Florida program history. Hughes made a strong impression during spring practices with the Vikings, taking turns at the nickel cornerback position and also working as a kickoff returner. Hughes had four interceptions for the Knights in 2017 to tie for the team lead and a 31.8-yard average on kickoff returns to rank fourth in the FBS. The four-year deal with a fifth-year option was done on Thursday. Vikings rookies report to headquarters on Tuesday Kolton Miller Youth Jersey , with their first on-field practice on Wednesday. — .
